Talk by Jose Acacio de Barros (San Francisco State University and Stanford). Given to the Foundations of Mind seminar at UC Berkeley (http://www.foundationsofmind.org/).
Summary. In this talk Dr. de Barros will discuss, in a very informal way, the connection between rationality, quantum cognition, and neural models. He will introduce ideas from quantum cognition and then, based on them, put forth an extended theory of rational thinking. The model presented is based on robust neurophysiological evidence, and we hope it can bring to the surface some issues on conscious (and unconscious) decision making.
